Baby Boomer Christmas Hamper          - 3/12/2007      <--Prev : Next-->

Looking at the Baby Boomer Headquarters Website I see they are producing a Baby Boomer Gift basket for Christmas.

Of course it is the American version, but we would probably conjure up our own Zimbabwe Baby Boomer gift basket and just imagine" what everything would be like as sure as nuts we could never find the articles anywhere let alone afford to buy them. BUT WE CAN DREAM !

But My Baby Boomer Christmas Hamper would contain the following :

A genuine, hand-crafted Tie-dyed T-shirt (extra-large)
A yo yo
A frisbee
A copy of Ritchie Rich or L'il Dot Comic
